Music In The Seventeenth And Eighteenth Centuries

“NATURE”

CHAPTER 8 The Comic Style

MUSIC IN THE SEVENTEENTH AND EIGHTEENTH CENTURIES

Richard Taruskin

But whence this cult of the “natural”? And where, once and for all, did the style we have been tracking in this chapter originate? We still have not traced this very important river to its source, for all the hints and suggestions thrown out along the way. Far from solving the historical problem (the problem of the “black hole”) with which we launched this chapter, all we have been doing is restating it over and over again, da capo, with variations and embellishments.
